    "C' est la premiere........"



    "....tres jolie".



    "Bomarzo" - written by Manuel Mujica Lainez - is based on the life of Pier Francesco Orsini, Duke of Bomarzo, a tortured, cruel, impotent antihero,; a hunchback obsessed by sex and his own fears. The staging is that of the Orsini's nightmarish gardens near Viterbo - peopled with huge grotesque stone figures, which the Duke believed summed up man's metaphysical anguish.
